I've Never Lost a Job in the Interview . . .

"So what do you consider your strengths?"

She scrawls the laundry list of adjectives I'm spitting out, struggling to keep even a few of the keywords from each accompanying anecdote. I give her time to catch up.

"Oh, yeah . . . I'm the only person within our entire department who manages the financials for the payment centers and who can generate reports at the request of the Director. And she does request those reports. Furthermore, I'm the only person in the City who maintains inventory for the hardware currently in use at those same centers. Last I checked, that's over three millions dollars worth of equipment. If you lose me, you lose that.

How many vacation days will I be getting?"
